If you all don't mind I'd like to ask a few hypothetical questions regarding work location and commuting.

 

Scenario

 

- Point A is a large city with a top university and several colleges. 

 

- Point B is a software company in a small village. It's 20+ miles from Point A which also involves a toll fee where it averages £55 per month.

 

 

I've added some questions. Thank you.

Where do you live relative to Points A and B?

I also live in Point A.

 

I know that makes it sound a bit biased but Point A is the nearest city to Point B, the rest are more than 60 miles away.

I've been offered jobs for good money where I'd have to commute and I've turned them down for two reasons.

 

  1. I don't like commuting, not only is it bad for me, it's bad for the environment and costly.
  2. A company that insists you work in a location is behind the times. 'Having' to be in one particular location benefits no one except those who value a power trip. It's cheaper to work remotely and staff happiness is proven to be higher with a greater quality of work being turned out

I agree with you completely. I'm happy in my current role but the monthly expenditures on fuel and toll fee are starting to grind on me.

For me, it would depend on how good the job is and how happy I was. If I'm spending hundreds of pounds per month for a job I'm not 100% invested in, I would start considering a new job!
